Mama Jonas Thinks Smart About Diabetes

Mama Jonas Thinks Smart About Diabetes

Denise Jonas, mom to famed Jonas Brothers, recently sat down with USA Weekend to talk about Nick‘s diabetes diagnosis.

The famous mom shared with the weekend magazine about Nick‘s mannerisms before he was diagnosed. She said, “He was listless and irritable. I chalked it up to puberty. But I was really alarmed at his weight loss. I remember him buying this pair of acid-washed girl jeans, and they were falling off him. He lost 15 pounds in two weeks.”

After Nick‘s diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes, big bros Joe and Kevin looked after their lil bro on the road and were trained to do things like give Nick insulin shots or test his blood sugar, because they, not mom, would travel with him.

Today, Nick has learned how to manage his diabetes. “He always has apple juice next to him on stage and backstage he has fruit snacks,” Denise shared.

Check out the new Diabetes PSA that the JoBros and mom Denise will unveil nationally Monday!

    Aw, poor MamaJ seems like she is still kicking herself for not thinking about diabetes right off the bat. She shouldn’t though. Puburty does act differently in everyone and the signs looked like it to her at the time. She is awesome on my book

    Yeah!! I like that… you know…. they really love their Mom… I dont know if it was like 2 or 3 years ago when I watched a video that is named “A day in the life of the Jonas Brothers”… Kevin hugged her Mom and that was one of the many things about this great band that I liked… they are the best… I hope to see them here in Guatemala in their World Tour because I admire them, even when Im older than Nick hahaha yeah I admire them a lot… anyways another thing is the dealing that Nick does with his Diabetes… thats something that I admire too…

    The Jonas Brothers r all cute and everyone speaks about them nicely, but i wonder how they really are…Hopefully they arent the type that think that just because they’re famous, they’re better than people who arent. Also if its really them writing all that stuff on Myspace, I hope they mean it because they said they would date their fans…hmmm i wonder..hehehee But i know they would never date somebody like me..duh or a whole lot of you out there..
    I hope they see this and maybe juuusst maybe they can tell me how they are..
    wow i wrote a lot..
